Svchosts Viewer False Positive


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have a false positive to report. The current version of MBAM is reporting Svchosts viewer as infected. The file gests a 100% clean rating at virustotal. I have pasted the MBAM log below and I have attached the actual file.

Virustotal Report:


There is one other unusual thing I would like to report. When right clicking on the file and then scanning with MBAM, the file comes up clean. However, if I do a quick scan, the file comes up infected. Is Heuristics disabled when scanning via right clicking the file ?
